When we don’t have anything to hope for, then what are we living for?
When we realize that our destiny lies in our hands through changing our thinking, when we realize that so long as we inhabit our bodies and notwithstanding the fact that we grow older, that if we’re mentally, physically and spiritually able, we can still pursue those dreams that brighten our eyes and light up our hearts.
The one thing that we need to help us carry on day to day is hope because with hope there are possibilities. With hope, there are alternatives to our despair.
Last week, I spoke about why it’s imperative to have a Blueprint for your life and the thing is that there’s no time better than now to have one.
As I began the journey of changing my life, my habits and creating the life of my dreams, I realized that people avoid creating a vision for their lives because they believe the exercise is futile.
I’ve also observed that the most successful, interesting and accomplished people all have a vision for their lives. They have a life plan.
While, on the other hand, those who are stuck in a rut with that sense of hopelessness and simply passing time in life without joy and aspiration, lack a vision. In fact, many of them don’t even bother to have any long-term goals because at the back of their minds they silently feel ‘why bother when it’s not going to be impossible to accomplish these things?’
Having a vision and being able to change your life complement each other. It’s not a silly waste of time!
Start from where you are. It’s never too late to begin.
I also promised to share my vision for my life. If you’ve got a moment to spare you can listen in and share your thoughts as well.
Nothing we have is truly ours. Not even our lives.
We are mere stewards of these gifts that we receive and so long as we have them, we owe an obligation to use them well.
Sometimes, when I hear people say, ‘it’s my life, therefore, I can live it the way I want,’ I am tempted to remind them that ‘even their life is not truly theirs and that maltreating their lives in the name of living how they want can be likened to a drunken captain who chooses to run his vessel aground because he’s the Captain of the ship, forgetting that someone put him in charge of that vessel.’
If truth be told, none of us can add more time to that which has been assigned to us, it is, therefore, imperative that we use the gift of our life in edifying ways that would bring glory to the giver.
All I know is that when the day is done and you stare at the beautiful, deep orange blush of the Sunset, your heart knows thanks for having yet another opportunity to live a day such as this.
All I know is that even when you think that all is lost, you must take a second and third look, there’s something to be found.
All I know is that the quieter your soul becomes, the more truth it can hear in clarity. Search fervently for those quiet moments. Pause the consistent running on the treadmill of life and linger in the meadows for a while.

It’s commonly said that when you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Living a successful life that you want requires conscientious steps to building the life that you want and like every builder worth his salt, you need your master blueprint to serve as your compass in your journey through living that successful life that you seek.
Your blueprint will make you more productive, progressive, inspired and fulfilled.
